Hello everyone: I have another card to share with you today with some really sweet Spring flower images to help you keep the hope alive that the Season of renewal is just around the corner. For all of us who live up North, there is still snow on the ground, the days are cold and gray and the peeks of the Sun here and there do not help or warm us at all so, I figured.....why not make a card to cheer everyone up a bit, eh? Here it is!!!
This retired Flourishes set is called "Spring Blossoms", I can't wait to see my Daffodils and Tulips, my Roses and Hydrangeas bloom again, this images are as close as I can get till they do.
I stamped the image onto Canson water color paper and colored it with the aqua painter and SU markers in Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive.
The sentiment is from the same set and the pretty frame from "Country Charm Labels", also from Flourishes. I stamped it with Strawberry Slush.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.
Ok, I used the sentiment on the Flourishes "Gerbera Daisies" and the little bird is from a retired SU set called "A Scene in a Garden", I thought that, since the sentiment mentions a bird, I would stamp this sweet one next to the word.
I die cut the frame with THIS Spellbinders Nestabilities dies and sponged the edges with Hello Honey ink.
I'm linking this card to the following challenges:
And the Time Out Challenge #49 , I got inspired by the word "FLOWER"
The Addicted to CAS Challenge #81 Code Word "BLOOM"
Here are some pictures of the retired stamps I used to create this card. Perhaps you could find them.
It started to snow again, this is looking outside my back yard. This stamp set is very well loved so I took this picture so you guys can see the images better.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
